NoveList, a division of EBSCO Information Services (EBSCO) is announcing a new seamless ILS integration with NoveList Select, its catalog enrichment resource. NoveList Select content is now displayed alongside library data in TLC’s (The Library Corporation) LS2 PAC. This latest announcement exhibits NoveList’s commitment to work with major vendors and systems so catalog users will find information where they need it, when they need it.
LS2 PAC Product Owner Dianne Coan explains the benefit of this integration for patrons. “The modern design of our LS2 PAC married with the rich data from NoveList equals a superior user experience for our librarians’ patrons. Our users not only find what they’re looking for quickly, but they can also explore the seamless display of reviews, series information, and recommended authors and titles.”
NoveList Select enables libraries to add rich reader-focused features including: reading recommendations, series information, events, reviews and book jackets to enrich their catalog and make it a tool for readers to discover great books. NoveList Select works with many major vendors and systems to ensure the content is seamlessly integrated into a library’s catalog. For customers that already have LS2 PAC and NoveList Select, the connection is very easy and no extra charge.
Vice President of NoveList, Duncan Smith, says working with TLC these last 10 years has helped more libraries reach their readers. “Our goal is to put expert reading recommendations and other expanded content into the place where it is most visible to library patrons and now libraries with LS2 PAC as their catalog solution can easily integrate the rich content of NoveList Select into their most frequently consulted resource—the catalog.”
